We stayed at this resort in March 2014 and liked it so much we returned in March of 2015 with our adult children and their partners. Once again, we had a great vacation. Our rooms were ready when we arrived at noon on a Sunday. By 1pm we were having lunch at the buffet and a round of mojitos. A... More

The gardeners work very hard to keep the grounds of this property immaculate. The hotel is pretty, but the windows and glass surfaces could use some much needed cleaning. The rooms are large and very bright and fully stocked. Our air conditioning wasn't working properly until about the last (3) days. The restaurants had an abundance of food and a... More

We stayed a week in 1104. Pros: Resort was kept very clean, overall. The landscaping and was beautiful. Room was spacious and we asked for a room with a spare bed when we checked in and they accommodated without added cost. Pool was clean, beach was cleaned daily and kept tidy. Service was very good, although the expectation for tips... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks in September 2014, had glorious weather majority of the time. This hotel is lovely almost all the people we were checking in with had been previously & were returning as they had liked it so much & after our 2 week stay I could see why. A good variety of shows, not really for... More

Just returned from a one week vacation to Iberostar Varadero. Walked into a very clean, well appointed room. All rooms have a nice size deck, fridge and coffee maker. It was cleaned beautifully every day. It is a large sprawling resort, where all building are low, so no view of ocean anywhere, but views of the grounds are gorgeous. The... More

This was our third trip to Cuba and our second stay at the Iberostar Veradero. After considering other places such as Mexico, Dominican and Jamaica, we were drawn back to this resort because of the wonderful time we had last year !!!! There is something to be said for being able to walk into a resort, and know where everything... More

Our first time in Cuba. We have stayed in other all-inclusive resorts before (Club Med, Iberostar etc.) Despite knowing Cuban food was mediocre at best, I was still surprised at the lack of flavor and choice. My biggest concern was the hygiene related to food preparation and distribution. Utensils that the cook used to serve cooked chicken & pork were... More

We recently returned from a week at the Iberostar Varadero. After much research and booking with a travel agent, we decided on this resort because it offered family junior suites since we were travelling with a 16 year old and wanted some privacy. Upon check in, we were checked into a room with two very small double beds (not even... More
